Fentanyl is becoming much more prevalent in Massachusetts and greater New England and is extremely dangerous to first responders. The Northampton Health Department, Northampton Police Department and Northampton Fire Rescue are sponsoring this class to help keep you safe on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 at the Hadley Farms Meeting House from 8:00am - 4:00pm. Lunch will be provided at no cost.

The training will focus on Fentanyl and its derivatives, One Pot Methamphetamine production and the Butane Hash Oil (BHO) Process. In the afternoon, there will be a live demonstration of the One Pot Methamphetamine Process and a Butane Hash Oil demonstration. This may be your only opportunity to see a live meth cook and BHO pull. 

This training will provide information to protect yourself in the event you encounter Fentanyl and Carfentanil a synthetic opioid that is 100 times more potent than fentanyl and is dangerous in small quantities.
